From the budget with the Medicaid expansion that we talked about previously. That you are always changing our. Told law means Paul but the opponent that we forums for Medicaid Spansion and we think are very important. He wondered what component. And we want to make sure the bad one was even stronger. We put the total walk a walk at all but and so basically that you can post them. Received Medicaid benefits feels good all the more warped requirement for we all want for the block data received benefits in the next but the wall Julia. That they won't be the second and didn't get was. We build on our addiction is. More liquid cash surety that already based upon the nature of it seems so far. It dawned. More rebate on the war according prudent act as we go on about it but believes that the neutral attitude good control.

Hey you've had some resistance from Republicans in the state senate's and I assume that there have been some conversations while you all were away for those 45 weeks. After the the regular session before the special session resumed. Where do you think things stand in the negotiations with GOP members of the senate. We're giving their job I mean yeah I did what can we back gang war maybe twice. For what people meant well and Medicaid expansion he did not think we had debates to walk it up and that's couldn't be torn. More may be different calculation but I think you conclude.

From the top and why not think abortion apple and options Chia you both what happened or. They called wild are on forward. And when they're home or what I could have been born of course who perform.

Bad move from vehicle to get out of network won't want to get too much. You know we're talking to the speaker of the Virginia house of delegates Republican delegate Kirk Cox from colonial heights. And you know we just finished in the veto session and by my count it looks like none of governor north comes ten vetoes. Were overturned which I guess isn't a surprise given the slam numbers. They do that Republicans hold. But then this morning we're hearing the delegate Glen Davis may leave the house of delegates to run for mayor of Virginia Beach. Man that would put you all on a tough spot. Just doing the sheer math right. That would be that nobody if you want to go on this third job. The quote control it and force a ball plopped one up the Republican leaning district. Who shall watch out we're truthfully people want to call it going. Are not enough to understand the importance of GOP majority. For example the flush bought that governments have remained off but the tax increases alone didn't talk much. And you told you that you were Asian whatnot that you would call your dog eat into jeopardy. I'm just to get to the war on. Near you have to do some polish and see where things stand. Stand there and you know we had the governor on last week and I kept. I kept pushing him on the sanctuary. City situation and he insists that Virginia does not have Sanctuary Cities and every time. We have him on and he says that I am bombarded with emails and calls from people who say. They just can't believe the governor can say that with a straight face and one of the bills that he vetoed was a bill that would clarify for everybody in non municipal government around the state. That they can't do anything that would impede the enforcement of federal immigration laws. And I know that that's been a key issue for a lot of Republicans nationally and in Virginia. What what. Are you saying to constituents who were frustrated buying. The governor's position and the fact that you know some mayors occur across the state are saying that they do want to protect illegal immigrants presumably at the cost of of bomb. Citizens. Dry your Bible on what yesterday because touched nerves you know what are you most governor beat pleasure you're not that simple or could you won't believe how we draw strong enough but the reports it should eat sushi that we actually make sure we have no more votes.
